Digital Mettle: custom software development

Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.

Isaac Newton

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Albert Einstein

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Leonardo da Vinci

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.

Steve Jobs

We simplify the process of bringing your ideas to life

Digital Mettle is a technology consultancy and custom software development firm. Since our founding in May 2001, we have delivered over 200 projects to nearly 100 clients. We are a mature, stable, established team ready to do serious software development for customers of all sizes.

The Digital Mettle difference

Digital Mettle collaborates with our clients to understand the unique challenges of their industries. By understanding a business as a whole and demonstrating solid return on investment, we become trusted to make continuous improvements across our clients’ organizations.

Being a service provider with our longevity is an important distinction. Unlike other development companies, we are not just waiting for the right time to pivot to become a product company. We don’t retain ownership of customer intellectual property to resell it. We will still be here, doing quality custom software development when you need us in the future. Nothing inspires new feature requests like having a finished piece of software in-hand, and you want to make sure you select a firm who will be there to provide the enhancements you need.

No matter your need: A small automation tool or a major new product, please do not hesitate to call and discuss how Digital Mettle can help.


Digital Mettle have been more than contractors. They have been an integral part of our team since the inception of our company in 2005. Anything that I have conceptualized, no matter how weird and wild, they have been able to build.

Charles W. Crutchfield Founder & CEO Simple Certified Mail

This is sincere: Digital Mettle cares deeply about the application they are building and the problems they are trying to solve. They think about all of the deeper questions that ultimately make software better. That is not what you always get from other developers, who often just want to "check a box" and say "it’s done".

Michael Worthington CEO BrightDoor Systems, Inc.

Digital Mettle knows how to help their clients understand the challenges, costs, risks, and rewards from multiple perspectives. No matter the enormous challenge thrown at them, Digital Mettle always finds a way to exceed expectations and deliver amazing products on time.

Aaron MazzePrincipalInveniv, LLC

Digital Mettle never “goes off in left field” like other development companies I've worked with. They always listen to what we have to say and deliver a solution which matches our needs on time and with minimal bugs.

Mark DeVineOwnerSensible Data Solutions

The technology they delivered is a great product, but more importantly, Digital Mettle is easy to work with. This is what how they really differentiate themselves. My company started from nothing, we were able to articulate verbally our ideas and Digital Mettle translated that into the technical solution that we needed to get started.

William C. Dengler, MD,FACSPresidentLegato Medical Systems, Inc.

What I like about working with Digital Mettle is that they give options and advice that help guide us to the best solution for the business case. When we have a project, they provide a personalized approach to the process of building the solution.

Christine ShimasakiManaging Director of empowermint.comDestination Marketing Association International

Digital Mettle was able to quickly learn the complexities of our business. I am proud that together we built a robust and aesthetically pleasing platform that is being used by hundreds of our clients.

Adam SacksManaging DirectorTourism Economics

Digital Mettle is unlike any company of software engineers I've ever worked with. Smart, but down to earth. Left-brain dominant, but understand right-brain driven marketing. Will actually sit in front of a client and talk business objectives.

Joseph GaitensMarcomm Strategy ConsultantIndependent

Honesty is what sets Digital Mettle apart. I've had many other vendors mislead me about what they know how to do, and Digital Mettle always tells it like it is.
